Plurax CL

Status: Common Catalogue

Plurax CL is commercially available in several European countries and is available for the first time in the UK in 2018. This variety is well adapted to European climates and is winter hardy and tolerates drought conditions. Plurax CL highlights DSV’s autumn vigour - being on par with market leading varieties - for making maximum use of the first 45 days of growth after drilling, where OSR lays the foundations for future yield. In private UK trials Plurax CL has given a seed yield of 103% and an outstanding oil content of 46.5%. It has good branching characteristics to deliver a stable yield, and an all round disease package with the best in its type for Verticillium wilt tolerance.

Plurax CL is suitable for sowing in all sites, due to its autumn vigour and the branching capacity of the plant. DSV would recommend planting this variety at 50 seed/m2 and a PGR should be applied in fertile soil and/or where known lodging can occur.
